Battlerite’s V Rising has been rapidly gaining popularity and a fanbase after the game’s release via Steam early access. It is available for PC after a series of betas, but it isn’t the full version of the game yet—despite which it has claimed a spot on Steam’s best-sellers chart within the top ten, which comes less than 24 hours after its release.
As a vampire survival game, V Rising has some tough competition to beat, but it seems to have surpassed new launches such as Arma Reforger and fellow indie Little Witch in the Woods to get on the #10 position in the best-selling list according to SteamDB.
V Rising from Swedish Developers Stunlock Studios Tops Steam’s Best-Sellers
At the time of writing, the concurrent player count is sitting at 70,256—which is a number that is bound to increase as the days move on. The game is all about vampires and their bloodlust, with the player reawakening after a centuries-long slumber and raiding settlements while avoiding the deadly scorching sun. Multiplayer mode has definitely helped in skyrocketing the game’s popularity, as playing teams make the battles easier.
Pulling off this feat with an early access title is no small feat, and Swedish developers Stunlock Studios has quite the competition ahead of them. The Top 10 daily most played games on Steam are a mix of the massively popular new games and classics such as PUBG, CS: GO, and Elden Ring. The overall player reviews on Steam are currently “Very Positive.”
When is V Rising Released as a Full Game?
While the game has no full release date as of this moment, the early access game is a whole ride in itself. The single-player mode is quite fulfilling on its own, but the most exciting part of the game is where you can invite your friends to fight together and expand your clan of vampires. There are over 50 bosses to be killed for blood, and just as many weapons and gear to get yourself acquainted with.
The development team seems to have a lot of work on their hands right now to get the game released as quickly as possible in order to secure one of the very top spots on the charts. With the smash-hit success nature of V Rising, no goal is too unreachable.
